thumbnail Hello,

The coach says he is in the enviable position of having an abundance of quality players at his disposal and praised his side following its 4-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc says he is "spoilt for choice" following his side's 4-0 Champions League demolition of Bayer Leverkusen.

Les Parisiens eased to an emphatic win in the first leg of its last-16 clash in Germany on Tuesday as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a double in between Blaise Matuidi's early opener and Yohan Cabaye's late strike.

PSG is now all-but-assured of a place in the last eight of the competition ahead of the second leg at the Parc des Princes on March 12 and Blanc was quick to congratulate his players on a magnificent display.

"Our team felt very focused after the Valenciennes match last Friday," the former France head coach told Canal Plus. "We were waiting for this game for a long time. We felt that the players were raring to go.

"Scoring in the third minute always helps. All that is left is to congratulate the players. PSG were very strong tonight - individually and collectively.

"The state of mind of the group is very good at the moment. I am spoilt for choice with my team selection. What is interesting is that you can count on everyone because everyone is focused and involved."

Ibrahimovic is now the top scorer in the tournament following his double at the BayArena, which took the striker's tally to 10 goals in just six Champions League games this term.
